      Forget spraying water outside the engine! Water injection plus E85 would be my idea of keeping a turbo rotor cool.

        If you do tinker with IC spray (which work great on top mount IC), the VN and VP washer bottle pump puts out 40psi and is $10 from all your local wreckers.

          So instead of towing a trailer full of water you will tow a trailer full of E85!? :D

            I hear these have cooling issues. I feel you really should address these cooling issues.

              Just seen Ed post up that it was sold.
              Seems to be a well sorted car.

                Just be aware of the rules for rally, water injection is not permitted. [emoji52]

                  Intercooler water sprays with really big pumps and hoses that run past the inlet pipes are fine...

                    ok so dirt track events are 10/10 hilarity. like the PF skidpan days but on quite a large clay base track.

                    wasn't allowed dirt tyres so put the street ones. the long travel suspension makes it harder than the 911's etc because you can't just jack up one side from one point- have to go wheel to wheel.


                    registered and put some plates on it, went to servo to pump up tyres and top up fuel:


                    that's the first time i drove it. kept driving it out to QR and it seemed to go ok on motorway, soaks up the bumps of the shitty qld roads, but still points really well.


                    eclectic line up for the dirt track. very fun casual day.




                    all sorts of late model stockish car were out; old mate in the FG was having a ball. don't need anything special, just a car you don't mind washing dust off.

                        What suspension is it running? Can you not just jack the rear end up under the diff?

                        Well done but.

                          probably, was just a minor inconvenience though.
                          has some custom MCA golds. remote reservoirs and the whole shebang. previous O worked closely with murray coote apparently.
